The content team curates your brand’s digital presence with organic growth in mind. They create engaging social posts, email newsletters, and blog posts. Following along with Deksia’s results-oriented mindset, reports are compiled and distributed monthly to each of our clients to show off their brand’s impact on their digital community.

In addition to having a good understanding of how social media works from a marketing perspective, content interns must be pros at combatting change. When a new algorithm strikes, as we all know it will, someone in this position is ready to work with the rest of the content team to pivot the game plan.

Content interns will report to a senior member of the content team. In addition to supporting social media accounts, duties include writing drafts for emails, blog posts, as well as pieces from social media campaigns. They may also be tasked with pulling numbers for reports and other data-gathering missions.
